At Central we believe serving is very important for 3 reasons:
Reason #1 - God Has Good Works for Us To Do
Ephesians 2:10 tells us that followers of Christ are his workmanship. He created us to to do good works. In fact, God has prepared in advance for us to do those good works. When we serve, we are fulfilling part of our God-given purpose
Reason #2 - To Show Love to People
Matthew 22:34-40 is known as the Great Commandment. The Great Commandment is straightforward: Love God and Love People. We believe a great way to show love for people and love for God, is to serve people and help meet needs in their lives.
Reason #3 - To Participate and Grow
God loves people and wants people to have a relationship with Him. For that relationship to begin and for people to grow in their relationships with God, they need help. As we serve, we can be a part of introducing people to God and helping people grow in their relationship with God.
